Why get a loft conversion?

There’s no limit to the number of reasons why homeowners in Portslade-Village opt for loft conversion. One of the most common reasons is to create an extra bedroom to ensure there’s enough space for every member of the family. A loft conversion is also ideal for a nice little hideaway to enjoy a hobby or a game room if you’re looking to add to your living space. Or you could turn it into your own safe haven where you can work, away from noise and distractions.

Yet another common reason for opting for a loft conversion is to improve the value of your house. Loft conversion is easily the most beneficial of all the means of improving the amount of usable space in a home.

It’s faster to complete than other home extension types and doesn’t prevent you from extending even without a garden. It’s much cheaper than moving houses and is generally cost-effective. Also, a loft extension doesn’t affect your beautiful garden and in most cases, doesn’t require planning permission. From day one until the project is completed, we’ll do our best to ensure the finished product is precisely as you dreamed it to be. Milosh Loft Conversions have been creating unique loft builds and designs for homeowners in Portslade-Village for a while, allowing them enjoy their beautiful homes even better.

You can be like them and get the home of your dreams.

How valuable is a loft conversion in Portslade-Village? Loft conversions have been cited by a number of studies as one of the best ways to improve the worth of a house. For instance, a Nationwide Building Society study indicates that the value of a house can go up by as much as 20% with the addition of a loft conversion.

If a house is worth £300,000, that would mean the value will go up to £360,000. If the hassle and money you have to spend isn’t a problem, then converting your loft is a great way to expand the space in your home while increasing its value.

Is a loft conversion really a good idea?

Absolutely. Whether you want a new bedroom and bathroom or need space for a nursery, getting a loft conversion is definitely worth it. Loft conversions don’t take too much time before the work is done. The end result is most certainly worth the mess that ensues as we work on your loft conversion.

Is Building Regulations approval needed for a loft conversion in Portslade-Village? Not every loft conversion project in Portslade-Village will require Building Regulations approval, but some will if the nature of the work demands it.

Your home will be subject to certain guidelines if there’s more than one floor. Building regulations pertaining to loft conversions are required to ensure that stairs are safely designed to the next floor and safe fire escape is made possible. Other major concerns include how stable the structure and roof are, how structurally sound the new floor is and how good the sound insulation between the loft conversion and the floors below is.

The Building Regulations may apply in different ways as the extent of work differs. Extensive activities such as installing stairs, boarding out the loft or lining the wall are likely to have the regulations apply. At Milosh Loft Conversions, we are accustomed to working within the national and local guidelines that apply in Portslade-Village. When you work with us, you wouldn’t have to worry about getting the necessary approvals done. What’s the cost of a loft conversion in Portslade-Village? Starting from £20,000, there’s a wide range of prices you could pay for loft conversions. Ultimately, what you end up paying will depend on factors like the number of dormers, the size of the extension and your location. In terms of the location, Portslade-Village is relatively affordable compared to other parts of the UK. In addition, Milosh Loft Conversions offer some of the most competitive prices on the market.

What types of loft conversions can I get in Portslade-Village?

The type of loft conversion that will be best for your house will depend on several factors. The amount of money you’re willing to spend is one of the most crucial factors to consider first. The second most important consideration is your house itself and how suitable it is for a loft conversion, including questions about the kind of roof you have and the amount of space available. Planning permission is also another important point to consider.

Depending on what you decide, we could opt for any of these loft conversion types:

Rooflight conversion; here, the existing roof space will be converted with roof lights added to the front and back to avoid increasing the volume of the roof. You also have the option of having windows added to the gable walls. Given the minimal alterations to be made, you won’t have to spend too much. Dormer conversion; this involves increasing volume at the back, sides or front by adding dormer windows into the pitched roof plane.

If only a small extension is needed due to your intention for the room, we may need to fit only one or two windows. If needed, we can build a room that covers the whole width of the roof, so you’ll end up with full headroom and a large enough space. Hip-to-gable conversion; if your roof slopes down on every side to the eaves, then it’s a ‘hipped’ roof. We can increase the usable space within such a roof by replacing one or more hips with a gable wall.

To complete the job, we’ll extend the roof over the gables to ensure enough space is created. Gable-to-gable conversions; after building the gable wall, the roof will be rebuilt at the back such that we have a raised, near vertical pitch that’s about the ceiling’s height. This type of loft conversion will result in a wall with windows. Terrace houses are well-suited to this kind of loft conversion If the goal is a large area with full headroom, then this method would work. Mansard conversion; our team will be doing major work to install a new box-like structure in place of your roof. This is like adding another storey with near vertical tile-hung walls. The roof we place on top of that will then be nearly flat. Is it possible to do a loft conversion for every kind of building? Loft conversions can be done on most kinds of houses.

However, there are houses where the shape and pitch of the existing roof can be a hindrance. We can help you make sure there’ll be no problems with a loft conversion on your house, so book an appointment with us today. We would need to know the number of usable load bearing walls are available to support the new structure. Having a loft conversion done won’t be a problem if you have a roof with a gable end wall. For a hipped roof, an intersecting pitched roof, or a trussed rafter roof on an older home, however, it could be a problem. We have worked on a variety of roof types in and around Portslade-Village, so you can count on us to deliver even if yours is a complicated roof.
